TIME TO RACE propels itself into the world of gentlemen drivers and also embodies the beauty of sport, the unique spirit expressing the merging of man and machine.
TIME TO RACE is a set of one-of-a-kind creation. Collectors will indeed be able to personalise their model by selecting a one or two-digit “lucky number” that will appear on the front of the timepiece.
The Green Racing colour highlighted on the strap has been specifically selected because it embodies the most legendary cars in motorsports. Indeed to ensure clearer vehicle identification, national colours were assigned in motor racing until the end of the 1960s. Thus, a green car brings to mind England.
Of all complications, the chronograph remains the most useful in the modern world. Powerful mechanism, it offers the most interaction with its wearer. TIME TO RACE dramatically increases this pleasure, as it is 100% visual. All it takes is one smooth press on the single pusher to make a unique choreography unfolds before your eyes.
The dial side reveals the sumptuous chronograph mechanism, fully visible and highlighted in a whole new way, with the strongly domed crystal reveals it even more fully. A side view also reveals a previously unknown sight... this ingenious and original design has given rise to a new type of inner bezel ring, dissociated from the crystal. It also makes it possible to combine two different readings of short-time measurements: a tachymeter scale and a 60-second display. The creation of this bi-material inner bezel ring is complex and owes its brilliance to the intensity of the colour present in its first quarter, made from an avant-garde material. Its bold character is further emphasised by a luminous transfer of the measurement indications designed to enable readability in the dark. Finally, the inner bezel ring frames a woven carbon fibre mainplate highlighting the 147 components of the chronograph mechanism.
Its polished and satin-brushed grade 5 titanium case weighs just 18 grams. It evokes the quest for minimum weight, as lightness entails more comfort and more seamless merging onto the wrist. This ergonomic feel is further enhanced by a rubber strap specially designed to be the perfect extension of the case and featuring a design inspired by motor racing.
